With KL Rahul and Chris Gayle as the openers, Punjab are bound to punish the Hyderabad bowlers if the lose their discipline.

Hosts Kings XI Punjab have won the toss and have opted to bat in their game against Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Hyderabad bowlers again rose to the occasion in the previous match against Kolkata Knight Riders, who were restricted to 138/8, the game in which SRH frontline bowler Bhuvneshwar took three scalps. On the other hand, the Kings XI Punjab are also high on confidence after winning a match against the Chennai Super Kings.

In OVERS 5, 13 RUNS came as Chris Gayle hit Rashid Khan with two huge sixes. Mayank Agarwal was looking great but could not last long as he got out after adding 18 runs off 9 balls with 2 fours and a six. Chris Gayle scored a century in this match and proved that he is in the good form through this. On the contrary, KXIP has won two of the three games they have played so far.

Talking of SRH, the Kane Williamson-led side has been unbeaten so far in the tournament.

Aaron Finch who has failed to score a single run in the tournament, could be replaced by Marcus Stoinis, who can also double up as the sixth bowling option.

Another positive aspect for the hosts of Thursday's match is that of KL Rahul, who brought up the fastest-ever IPL fifty in Punjab's first match of their campaign against DD.
